An even dozen make a year,
The eighth one is my favorite,
An August birthday is the best.
Each month has its own qualities
That makes it stand out from the rest,
An even dozen make a year.
The first, the New Year’s Day parade,
The twelfth has Christmas Eve and day,
The eighth one is my favorite.
Born in August, you’re not upstaged
By a national holiday,
August birthdays are the best.
